$2.85 Hamburger Cart: In Yo Face, McDonalds!

285 Burger

A hamburger for $2.85? I haven’t had a burger that cheap since I broke up with McDonalds seven years ago!

Across from SFU Downtown (near the Waterfront Canadaline stop), the $2.85 Hamburger Cart sells two things – and two things only. One obviously being the hamburger for $2.85. Slap on another 65 cents and they’ll slap on a slice of cheese.


Simple cart, simple menu, simple burger. There were the typical fixings of lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise on a toasted bun. The patty was cooked pretty well. While it wasn’t exactly squishy with juice, it wasn’t dry either. It was also brushed with some cart-made teriyaki sauce.

The teriyaki sauce definitely made the burger more delicious. The intermingle of sweet and savoury just can’t be beat, especially at this price!

Final Bytes

  1. I’ve heard of long lines from others (but I went at 3PM)
  2. Cash only
  3. Cheap, but doesn’t taste cheap
